Planning Committee meetings
Planning Applications will normally be dealt with by the Planning Committee at a meeting held at 7pm prior to the full Parish Council meeting.
On occasions when responses to a planning application require consideration of the application to be held in public, a special meeting of the Committee will be called. These special meetings will be advertised on the Website and on the Public Notice Board at the entrance to the playing field on Main Road.
Meetings are held at the Yapton & Ford Village Hall. Members of the public are warmly invited to all meetings of the parish council. During each meeting there is an agenda item called “Public Question Time” which is opportunity for members of the public to ask questions or raise any matters of concern with members of the council.
Horses / ponies on the King George V Playing Field
Over recent weeks it has come to the attention of the Parish Council that one or two horses / ponies, sometimes pulling a cart/trap, have been ridden on the King George V Playing Field. The Parish Council received many complaints about the way that the horses have been ridden on the field, particularly during the Summer Event held on the 11th August.
The Parish Council recently issued the following statement: “The riding of horses or ponies is not permitted on the King George V Playing Field in Yapton. This includes animals pulling carts behind them. This is an offence under section 4 of the Parish Council byelaws relating to the use of the playing field. If you see anyone using horses/ponies on the field or know the identity of anyone doing so please report to the Clerk of the Council on 01243 859141 or by e-mail Clerk@yaptonpc.gov.uk. The parish council will enforce these bylaws to ensure the playing field remains a safe place for residents and visitors to enjoy.”
